core courses. Students choose from a large number of elective courses
according to their personal interests and specialization area, including for
example: theoretical, empirical, and computational linguistics, phonetics,
phonology, psycholinguistics, and second language acquisition research.
The MA program complements the classical linguistic education with
experimental and empirical research methods. It offers a strong computer

modern linguistic research domains.

tutoring involving current research issues.

methods, including:
- collection and processing of data
